Tall Criss-Cross Card Complete

This the Tall Version of a Criss Cross Card.

The cardstock is Elegant Eggplant, stamped all over with the open petal from the Polka Dot & Paisley stampset.

I do like the Tall Criss Cross Card to be able to stand up so I add a leg at the back of the card, see further down for photo.

The Band wrapped around the whole card is Orchid Opulence, stamped using Elegant Eggplant with the dots background stamp in the Polka Dot & Paisley stamp set.

This is the insert with is loose and can be pulled out completely.

The flowers on the Band is actually the tall flower in the Polka Dot & Paisley stamp set, same as the one on the inside, but the head is cut off. You need to stamp it 4 times to make this flower. I added a tiny pearl to the centres.

The Centre Flower is layered on to scallop circles, then 1 1/4 circle. I used a white gel pen to make the dots on the scallops on the scallop circle. The card is More Mustard.

This is the Leg or Kick stand!!! I made for the card to stand up.

Thanks for looking,
